Tivis, a published researcher herself, oversees the Center’s Nursing Research and Evidence-based Practice Fellowship program. This year’s nurse fellows have been conducting five research studies and three evidence-based practice projects on topics ranging from pediatric delirium to aromatherapy, palliative care, oral nutritional supplements, and attitudes toward acupuncture.The fellowship program sets aside eight hours per pay period for nurse participants to attend educational sessions, work with mentors, and conduct a research or evidence-based practice (EBP) project during the year. The process advances nurses as scientists, Tivis points out. The studies and projects benefit St. Luke’s patients and the community by advancing knowledge.
Thanks to their work, tiny newborns experience fewer direct blood draws at St. Luke’s. The project also won a first-place award in the poster competition at St. Luke’s Research Symposium in February 2013.“We have a strong program that others want to emulate,” Tivis says. She and 2012 Nursing Research Fellows Stacy Tucker and Erica Yager joined Boise State University nursing faculty to offer a presentation about the program at the Western Institute of Nursing conference in California in April.
To that end, she and Center for Nursing Excellence director Diana Meyer are now planning a writing workshop to help nurse researchers prepare manuscripts for publication.
The most valuable thing we have is our health. And the most valuable thing St. Luke's can do is help you live as healthy a life as possible. We're taking care forward as we develop new ways—and refine the tried and true—to improve health, improve care, and lower costs.
